Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology encompasses a variety of research investigating characteristic dimensions that are less than ~100 nanometers. Some of the research has included the development of faster electronics, the enhancement of biomedical imaging, and the creation of ultra-strong, extremely lightweight materials.

A well known example of nanotechnology research would be nanotubes, created when carbon atoms bond to one another and form ubiquitous planar hexagonal rings (as in graphite). When manufactured on a molecular level, these fullerene tubes offer revolutionary electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties at the nanoscale.
